WISDOM IS A GIFT FROM GOD
God has granted us the gracious and glorious gift of the wisdom that we need to live out our days. God will give us discernment, the ability to do what is right and honorable in His sight, and to know when to speak. The wisdom that all of us need comes from God. If you need wisdom, all you have to do is ask God. In James 1:5, we find these words:
“If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.”
In this chapter, James writes about faith and endurance. When our faith is tested, we have a chance for our endurance to grow. James writes about the importance of growing in our faith. He says that when you ask for wisdom, “Be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind.” When you get a chance, read this entire chapter. Prayerfully you will find, as I have, that you need God to grant you wisdom every day. Do not be afraid to ask Him for wisdom in every situation. I know, without a shadow of a doubt, that when we ask, we shall receive.
